During June, which is national Dairy Month, Dairy Council of California is sharing the wondrous secrets of milk through a new infographic filled with fun and surprising facts about milk, along with specially-selected recipes to help families include milk and milk products in their diets. View the infographic and recipes at HealthyEating.org/SecretsofMilk.

"I think many consumers would be surprised to learn that milk is a local food, going from the dairy farm to the supermarket shelf in just two days," said Ashley Rosales, Registered Dietitian with Dairy Council of California. "We're using June as a time to highlight these little-known facts to help consumers feel great about including milk and milk products in their food choices."

Other wondrous secrets contained in the infographic include:

  • Adults and children who regularly consume milk and milk products have healthier diets overall.
  • Milk hydrates and provides protein and carbohydrates, making it nature's sports beverage.
  • At around 25 cents per serving, milk is an affordable kitchen staple that can be used in smoothies, soups, casseroles, puddings and many other recipes.
  • Milk contains a natural sugar called lactose and a protein powerhouse of whey and casein that make it naturally sweet and satisfying.
  • The proven health benefits of milk go beyond bone health to include lowering blood pressure, boosting immunity and reducing the risk of certain cancers.

"When you put all of these facts and benefits together, it really shows that milk and milk products are irreplaceable," said Rosales. "No other single food or beverage offers the same package of nutrients or variety of benefits—and we're excited to unveil the wondrous secrets of this shopping cart staple."
